If there are people or groups on your Facebook list whose posts usually annoy you but you don't want to permanently unfriend them, a solution is on the way.

The social media platform will soon roll out a 'Snooze' button that allows you to temporarily unfollow friends, Pages or Groups for 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days.

The 'Snooze' feature will discourage people from permanently unfollowing, unliking or unfriending people/groups on Facebook while still giving them control over what they see.

A Facebook spokesperson confirms it’s testing the 'Snooze' feature, telling TechCrunchWe’re testing new ways to give people control over their News Feeds so they can stay connected with the stories they find most relevant.

Now that you will soon have the absolute power to control what appears on your Facebook timeline, those annoying and unsolicited posts from your school Group and the endless relationship goals by that friend can now be kept out of your sight.
